about

One of my favorite songs in the world, this tune by David Rawlings and Ketch Secor is an absolute masterpiece. I'm honored to be joined on this recording by the voices of my dear friends The Juggernauts (Gaura Vani and Visvambar Sheth), my mom Clair Oaks, my mother-in-law Gisela Moreau and my cousin-in-law Celeste Antunes, as well as my brother forever (can co-producer of this album) Ian Hafiz Turner. It's a family affair for sure. With the addition of Ian's slide guitar and the piano of Daniel Meron, this song will sit right in your sweet spot.

lyrics

I hear the crying of the hungry in the deserts where they're wandering;
Hear them crying out for heaven's own benevolence upon them;
Hear destructive power prevailing, I hear fools falsely hailing
To the crooked wits of tyrants when they call.

I hear them all
I hear them all
I hear them all

I hear the tearing of the pages and the roar of burning paper;
All the crimes in acquisition turn to air and ash and vapor;
And the rattle of the shackled far beyond emancipators;
And the lowliest who gather in their stalls.

I hear them all
I hear them all
I hear them all

So while you sit and whistle Dixie with your money and your power,
I can hear the flowers growing in the rubble of the towers.
I hear leaders quit their lying.
I hear babies quit their crying.
I hear soldiers quit their dying, one and all.

I hear them all
I hear them all
I hear them all

I hear the tender words from Zion, I hear Noah's waterfall,
Hear the gentle lamb of Judah sleeping at the feet of Buddha
And the prophets from Elijah to that old Paiute Wovoka
Take their places at the table when they're called.

I hear them all
I hear them all
I hear them all
